Concerto – Tiago Bettencourt

April 23, 2021

Synopsis

Author of several reference compositions of the new Portuguese music, it was more than ten years ago that he embarked on what would be his first studio adventure, with Toranja, forever marking the Portuguese musical panorama.

Last October 30th, Tiago Bettencourt brought us his latest work, 2019 Towards Eclipse. About his seventh album, sixth of originals, writes the Portuguese musician:
2019 Rumo ao Eclipse is an album that talks about movements that took place in 2019. However, although I point to a specific year and its orbits, these plots are not tied to any date or time frame since they are an intrinsic part of something that accompanies the life of each of us: our humanity. And when things are like this, it offers us the challenges that we have to deal with, armed with weapons and defenses, with strengths and weaknesses. This album talks about choices, struggles, hurt and indignation, detachment, relief, acceptance, home, and freedom. ‘2019 Towards Eclipse’ is a round trip, as all my albums are. All of my albums are mazes, this is just one more. I hope you choose to listen to it with the time that any trip deserves.
2019 Towards Eclipse includes 12 themes, all written and produced by Tiago Bettencourt, and has special participation by Mariza in ‘Núvem’, Cláudia Pascoal and Mariana Norton ensure the choirs in ‘Manhã’, ‘Feminino’ and ‘Fachada’, Fred Ferreira plays drums in ‘Dança’ and ‘Não Queiras Mais de Mim’ and Ivo Canelas lends his voice to ‘Intro Fachada’.

The album is available on CD, vinyl and digital format, having so far produced the singles ‘Trégua’, ‘Dança’ and ‘Viagem’, whose video were filmed in Vila de Velas, on the island of São Jorge, in Azores, origin of the paternal family of Tiago Bettencourt.
